Which Reminds Me

Yes, I remember that you were referring to that famous novel by Henry James, "The Turn of the Screw," which features, famously, a strangely obsessed governess who has charge of two very strange little children, Miles and Flora, who commune with ghostly apparitions.

And if I failed to pass the governess test while babysitting my two little cousins, I am not sure that I care very much about that. I would prefer to not be held responsible for whatever they do. Let me be counted absent and then let's see how they burn the house down or whatever. Then we will see more clearly where their heads are at.

Which Reminds Me

I will be dropping off some things that I really do not need which means, sad to say, which means that we will need to drop off Steve at the passport office. Thanks for signing my passport but I cannot have all these blue-collar Detroit car mechanics throwing monkey wrenches at me. I have a different type of job to do and prefer not to be distracted by the clueless cousins who are adept at mostly building roads to nowhere. Thus we can easily see that I really don't need Wisconsin to get "over" Detroit. I am already "over" Wisconsin also, but that does not make me a Canadian. Needless to say.

Which Reminds Me

Wisconsin is now infamous for being the birthplace of an aunt of mine who is the EX-wife of my uncle, who is now remarried to someone else. This leaves Wisconsin in the garbage basket it would seem although I had nothing to do with it and don't know anything about it. Why should I accept the blame for what the blithering idiots of Wisconsin, or was it North Dakota, did to themselves? Yes, no deal.

All I need is a job with a paycheck, and also not so many strings attached.

Which Reminds Me

Hmmm..... If Samuel Sokobin's passport signed by Ernest Price made his residence in China a legal existence, the same or similar can be said of Roy Chapwood Andrews, whose passport, coincidentally, also was signed by Ernest Price. Even so, if all these earnestly delivered speeches lack a factual cohesion, well, I may rightfully ignore your earnest brand of stupidity. Needless to say. Because anyway that was not the issue. There were passports and passports, old and new, original and reissued. Whatever that meant I am not sure but there was a World War raging at the time, at least in 1917. We cannot speak for 1921.

Which Reminds Me

Yes, you would think that Bessie May Hamilton (1878-1917) would be happy to be the wife of the extremely wealthy Mr. Alexander Melville Hamilton (1878-1932), son of the famous Mr. Robert Dollar (1844-1932), whose shipping company operated numerous passenger ships all over the world. And yet, in her passport application of 1917, she lists her husband as "John H." How could that happen? John Harold, Alexander's younger brother, was married to Agnes Barr. How can you not know the name of your own husband? What mindless clerk typed out your passport application which you signed without having read it? Is that what happened? Oddly, she died of smallpox three months later.

I can easily see that you have mistaken me for those Democratic Party activists Joan, Kathy and Heather. Even so, I don't know anything about it. They never tell me anything.

Which Reminds Me

It is true that I have, or rather had, an uncle who was called "Doc" Andrews. He was not really a doctor, however. He was a dentist and his name was "Alton Marion," although he died in 1977.

Even so, the surname of Andrews is not rare. There are many Andrews family members all over the world, especially in Scotland. Andrews is a rather common name, actually, so whether my Andrews in-law connections are somehow connected to Roy Chapman Andrews, I really have no idea. My cousins have yet to discuss this point with me so I really cannot explain it for them.

I have enough problems already without the Andrews taking potshots at me. Needless to say.
